The ELEVATE Volvo P3 Air Intake J-Pipe is engineered to provide maximum power and torque for the 3.0L T6 engine. This is achieved by increasing both flow and capacity of the "J" shaped pipe between the factory intake pipe and the turbocharger. The factory "J pipe" has a resonator section integrated to reduce intake sound. While searching Volvo part number 30757872, Volvo names the part a "Resonator". This “Resonator” section creates turbulence and restricts flow just before the turbo inlet.
Although the factory pipe between the MAF Sensor and the “Resonator” section has some unique shapes, the inside diameter remains much greater than the inside diameter of the turbocharger inlet, so there is no restriction in flow. Therefore, in Elevate’s testing, this factory pipe has no benefit in being replaced.
Made in the USA of mandrel bent aluminum construction, Elevate’s design allows greater and unrestricted air flow into the turbo, yielding more power and quicker turbo response. A bright silver thermal coating reflects heat and helps keep the intake charge cool. Elevate then wraps the pipe with a fabric weave that is manufactured from pulverized volcanic rock to keep the intake air temperature as low as possible. The black plastic factory pipe absorbs under hood heat, creating a loss in power. High quality black 4-ply silicone hoses with clamps are included to complete the installation.
Elevate’s P3 Air Intake J-Pipe is also available without the thermal wrapping. See the Elevate website for details.
Comprehensive installation instructions are included.

I will admit I had some problems getting this product installed, but it was well worth it for the piece of mind knowing I have just done some preventative maintenance.
Considering this product replaces a plastic item which is located next to the engine (literally 2-3 inches away) at the hottest part of the engine, and on top of the turbo.
I highly recommend having an extra pair of hands or two to help you during the installation (it took me multiple days without an extra pair of hands) ( I am also a new novice at doing car DIY)
Simply put I lack the experience most people would have for this, yet I was able to get it installed.
I also recommend to take pictures of each part (J pipe new and old) (pcv oil trap) (air intake assembly) to help you remember what each part is supposed to look like when you are finished with installing.
I also highly recommend power tools preferably the thin ones that are good for hard to reach places. And make sure to have varies extension bits to make the installation a bit easier.
All in all this is a good product which puts the mind at ease in terms of long term future maintenance.
